Cox Family News Letter Volume 41 Number 12


Cox Family News Letter Volume 41 Number 12

Dear Friends

2011 was a wonderful year for the Cox Family here in Raleigh.  Evelyn continued her volunteer work with the local chapter of The American Red Cross.  This year, Evelyn concentrated more on volunteering for Red Cross events where they provide first aid locations for public events.  This fall and winter she began to help with the Disaster Assistance Teams (DAT) again.

Zach continues to work full time but has set a definite date when he will no longer work full time (The date is 15 May 2013). Zach rode in his 14th consecutive MS-150 Bicycling Tour this year and participated in his 7th Cycle North Carolina Bicycle Tour.  He continues to visit the gym for an hour or so 5 days a week at 5:30am to swim and exercise, and gets in as many bicycle rides as he can.

Robert continues to help around the house as well as take courses at the local technical college.  This fall Rob gave up using Apple Computer products and instead built up from scratch his new (and now only) Windows-Intel computer (it really is a nice computer).

Anna and James have announced their engagement to be married in 2012.  We are all very excited about this and look forward to the wedding.

Ginny and Joe are doing grand in Berkeley CA.  Evelyn drove out to CA this summer with Anna and they had a good visit.  Anna flew back and Evelyn stayed on.  Zach flew out the last week in August (had a great visit with Ginny and Joe) and then Evelyn and Zach drove back across country together.

We hope you have a wonderful holiday season and a safe, healthy and prosperous New Year.
